Jerroms Corporate Finance have assisted PurpleSpace Limited (PurpleSpace) the world’s only networking and professional development hub for disability employee resource groups, to embark on an exciting new chapter with the announcement of their transfer of ownership to Scope that will enable them to secure future expansion, expertise and innovation.

Scope’s pioneering approach to achieve equality for disabled people aligns superbly with the global mission of PurpleSpace. Through a shared vision for the future, Scope offers PurpleSpace access to a wealth of expertise, in-house resources, and strategic vision to further enhance its services and broaden its impact, enabling them to drive the business forward.

Kate Nash, Founder, PurpleSpace said: “I always anticipated that as PurpleSpace grew, it would require more investment and a smooth and thoughtful shift from my position as the founding CEO to that of Founder Ambassador. This transition phase is crucial for maintaining consistency, attracting new customers, and generating fresh ideas to further advance and expand on our remarkable accomplishments thus far. It represents the natural progression to empower PurpleSpace to thrive. Having begun my own journey at Scope, it feels secure and right to have come full circle to entrust the potential of PurpleSpace into their capable hands. I look forward to remaining closely involved and supporting continued success.

David Fletcher from Jerroms Corporate Finance guided us through the process step by step, ensuring we had a clear understanding to make well-informed decisions. Additionally, Mike Linford and Andrew Martin from Talbots Law provided us with excellent legal advice. Both Jerroms and Talbots displayed impressive professionalism and commitment throughout.”

David Fletcher, Managing Director, Jerroms Corporate Finance said: “Working with Kate Nash has been a delightful experience once more and we extend our sincere congratulations to Kate having advised and supported her throughout the transaction. This strategic partnership with Scope will enable PurpleSpace to secure the ethos, values and culture of the business and we wish them the very best for the future.”

Mark Hodgkinson, Managing Director, Scope said: “Scope has been proud to be a part of PurpleSpace’s growth as a founding partner of the #PositivelyPurple movement since 2019. As an organisation we know that disabled people will lead the change we know is necessary. We are determined to change the future and together, as a collective movement of disabled people we want to see how we can deliver real change through innovative ERGs/Networks. We won’t stop until we achieve a society where all disabled people enjoy equality and fairness. Our investment in PurpleSpace delivers on our values and purpose and builds on Kate’s vision.”

Mike Linford, Director, Talbots Law said: “We were delighted to assist Kate with this transaction working alongside David from Jerroms. We thoroughly enjoyed working with both Kate and David throughout the course of this matter.
